A schoolhouse story
Sure I remember putting together my first Colt AR 14
And thinking My family My wife who
is an invalid Shot at the age of 22
And my 9 and 10 year old
Now They will eat more than grits
Now They will protect themselves with more than Slingshots
When I started It was the pistol Grip
A somewhat simple piece yet without it the trigger would lay dormant
I tended to to it with passion until I was needed for the collapsable stock
True I was challenged by complex parts Parts that only went
Click and Chick
When the fit was down to the millimeter
It makes a sound Similar to The detachable magazine
And with that the ears resound with goodness
After 5 years I got moved up In charge of Grenade launchers
That year I afforded 33 Christmas Presents without pulling my belt
A bayonet for Lee made him cry with joy!
A night viewer for Margaret was her best ever toy!
But this year in a Flash It seems my life has changed
There's talk of suppression Jobs at Armalite are at stake
Some blame it on Newton And that bloody massacre
Still here in Illinois There is cheer in the air In the marketing department
Now I am In charge of communiqués I wrote:
"ArmaLite will stop processing shipments to customers at noon, Thursday December 20st through January 2nd due to year end inventory. Shipments will resume on January 3rd. ArmaLite will be closed Dec 22nd through Dec 25th for the Christmas Holiday Due to limited supplies of AR10 and M15 magazines quantities will be limited to 2 per customer until further notice"
Was the last one I wrote today and
Then I got my final notice "Thank you for your 15 years of service."
